Pool FAQ & Troubleshooting


I can't find the Pool I was staking in!

You should be able to find the Pool under the "Finished" tab on the Pools page.

By selecting "Staked Only", it will make it easier to find your assets.

Why can’t I unstake my tokens from a Pool?

If you are unable to unstake from the Stake MRSH, Earn MRSH pools, please check to make sure that you haven’t sold the tokens in your wallet. This token acts as a `proof of ownership` over your MRSH in the Manual MRSH pool.

Why did my earned tokens go to zero after staking/unstaking?

Don’t worry! They’re in your wallet already.

Whenever you stake or unstake from a Pool or farm, your earned tokens get harvested and sent to your wallet at the same time.

General Questions

How is APR for Pools calculated?

Pool APR = Annualized rewards (USD) / User funds staked in Pool (USD) * 100

As a basic exMRSH, let's take a 60-day pool with 300,000 USD worth of rewards, and 3,000,000 USD worth of MRSH staked in it.

The APR fluctuates as more MRSH is staked by users, and as the price of MRSH, and the reward token, vary.

  Calculation Amount
Total rewards to distribute (USD value)   300,000 USD
Distribution period   60 days
Daily distribution 300,000 / 60 = 5,000 USD daily
Annualised rewards (USD value) 5,000 * 365 = 1,825,000 USD
Value of MRSH staked by users in pool (USD value)   3,000,000 USD
APR (1,825,000 / 3,000,000) * 100 = 60.833% APR

What does the “End” number on my Pool refer to?

This shows the amount of blocks left until the rewards for that pool stop being distributed. Once the pool has reached that block, you should unstake your tokens, because you won’t be receiving any rewards after that.

Where do the rewards from Pools come from?

There are three main types of Pools.

  • Stake MRSH, earn MRSH
  • Stake MRSH, earn other tokens.
  • Stake other tokens, earn MRSH

The rewards for the "Stake MRSH, earn MRSH" Pools come from the MRSH emissions. Each block, a number of MRSH tokens are allocated as rewards for these pools.

The rewards for the "Stake MRSH, earn other tokens" type are provided by the project teams who sponsor a Pool.

For the "Stake other tokens, earn MRSH" type, the Marshmallow treasury buys back MRSH from the market to distribute as rewards. These pools are funded by Marshmallow, not by the projects themselves.

What’s Pool Token?

Marshmallow’s Pool Token is deposited in your wallet when you interact with the Manual “Stake MRSH, Earn MRSH” Pool. It's not staked for

It’s basically an IOU that shows how much MRSH you’ve staked in the pool.

It’ll be returned automatically when you unstake your MRSH from that pool.

Don’t sell your POOL tokens! You need to return your POOL to unstake your MRSH from the Manual MRSH pool. The amount of POOL you return must be the same as the amount of MRSH you unstake.
